Power restored to PG&E customers following gas leak near state Highway 92 

Service has been restored to PG&E customers that temporarily lost power on Monday due to a gas leak near state Highway 92 in the area of Half Moon Bay, a PG&E spokeswoman said.

About five residents and businesses in the area were affected by the leak, PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris said.

The leak was reported at approximately 4:45 p.m. near Main Street in Half Moon Bay and a Sig-alert was issued by the California Highway Patrol.

Highway 92 was shut down in both directions between Half Moon Bay and Skyline Boulevard, but was reopened at about 5:25 p.m., according to the CHP.

However, power wasn’t restored until 8 p.m., Morris said.

CHP Officer Peter Van Eckhardt said that the roadway reopened after PG&E crews were able to close the main.

According to Morris, the leak was the result of a failed regulator.

“A regulator is part of a larger system that allows gas pressure to reach an appropriate level for it to be distributed to customers,” she said.
